This report presents the findings and recommendations of a study commissioned by the City of Brookings to identify gaps between residents' personal mobility needs and existing services and to recommend actions, including opportunities to improve coordination among area service providers. The study included two meetings of an advisory group, which included representatives from the City of Brookings, public and private transportation providers, social service agencies, SDSU, Brookings Public School District, and downtown Brookings. During the first meeting, transportation needs and available services were identified. During the second meeting, areas of concern and recommendations were presented for discussion. Information gathered during these meetings was crucial to the preparation of this report.
